Stimirol, born in Pilanesberg approximately 20 years ago, has succumbed to his injuries and passed away. Stimirol has been treated 3 times in the past year for wounds sustained from fighting another territorial bull. It is not uncommon for Rhinos to fight each other, sometimes to the death. Sadly they seem to be unaware of the threat they are under.
In the images here, Stimorol was treated last Friday. He got up from the treatment but a few days later he was found under a tree. Having passed away peacefully we hope.
As with all Rhino injuries, Steve will check for any sign of bullets that may be present even though the wound may not look like a bullet wound.
Stimirol will be missed, but at least we know this is the natural order in nature, sad as it is.
RIP big boy….xx
